A valuable find from the South African mountains. Large, iris-like, bright yellow flowers held well above the thin strap-like leaves, but these are different from other moraeas as you will agreeably discover when you smell the overwhelming perfume!
Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed pot in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
